Current package doesn't install the cmake files for protobuf.

File is here

Cmake has but it needs protobuf-config.cmake to be installed for it to work
This task depends upon

Sounds like an upstream issue, CMake should either provide their own *working* FindProtobuf module, or they should use the standard pkg-config files (but oh wait, cmake hates pkg-config and decided to reimplement it).

How should we install the cmake files? Currently we use the autotools build system to install protobuf...

Just copy that file to correct dir using install and sed the things in the in file you need to set?

If they're just using configure_file...

Have you considered submitting an upstream bug report asking them to install the file when using autotools as well?

"it needs protobuf-config.cmake to be installed for it to work"

This doesn't make sense. Cmake uses *either* FindFoo.cmake files provided by cmake (or one of its extensions such as ECM) *or* FooConfig.cmake files provided by the packages themselves, but not both. And FWIW, find_package(Protobuf) works fine here with the cmake-provided module.
